About Me


My Philosophy

Think of the body as an internal landscape and external lanscape. Both our inner and outer worlds need to be balanced, operating well and in harmony with each other for us to "feel good". We can also think of good health within four categories the physical, emotional, spiritual and mental. When we optimises the functioning within these areas our overall well being is also optimised.

The balance of these requires a bespoke balance of treatments and activities and this mix will change as you change

This is why I offer a range of products and why what used to work for you, maybe doesn't work for you anymore. So cherry pick your yoga, your nutrition, your exercise, your treatments, your meditations, whatever you need. Make them perfect for you. I would love to be part of your journey.

Namaste, Aho, Blessed Be.

About Me


This is actually a well used mis-quote! What Buddha really meant goes ones step further i.e. Listening your own reason and common sense isn't enough, you need to listen to your inner wisdom aswell, to the mind, body and spirit and trust what you're gut tells you. Never believe the teaching over how you feel.

That's how I want you to approach my classes, massages, treatments and workshops. No teaching is meant to be held onto! Each experience provides just what you need at in the moment and you should let go of if when it's no longer right for you. Hear the same lesson on different occations and they will have different meanings to you.

I have suffered anxiety and depression most of my life, I have lost both my parents, struggled with weight problems and eating issues and I can tell you all the things I have done to heal myself. But ... only you know how you feel and what works for you. What I can tell you is that you deserve to be the best version of your possible. You are, after all, a work of art!

I have been doing yoga for over a decade and spiritual work for twice that and have trained with some amazing teachers. The more I learn, the more vast and incredible I find the healing power of yoga, massage and sound. I want to share the teaching I have recieved with you so you can start to heal yourself and achieve the grandest aspirations you have for yourself

If you're new to yoga this class creates a strong and safe foundation and if you're already on your yoga journey these classes will offer fun and challenging poses to take your practice further. As you reconnect all aspects of yourself this leads to peace and ease in the mind and body.

Poses are ofter held for a little longer and, as you learn to breath through the resistance to that on the mat you cultivate a to tool to use off of mat.

Gentle Yoga

Anyone who has a condition, injury or just wants a softer style of practice will love this class. This is a parred back class with a focus on healing and accomodating EVERYONE. We slow and investigated the best version of the poses for you and how postures can be modified and props used so that you can still experience the pose regardless of where you are right now.

Introductions to Inversions

This is class is aimed at improving/intermediate instructors who are looking to move their practice on and start working on advanced and balancing postures and incorporating those into their practice.

Holistic


Meditation and Mindfulness

Meditation isn’t about becoming a different person, a new person, or even a better person. It’s about training in awareness and getting a healthy sense of perspective. You’re not trying to turn off your thoughts or feelings, you’re learning to observe them without judgment. And eventually, you will start to better understand them as better.

Mindfulness can be described as the practice of paying attention in the present moment, and doing it intentionally and with non-judgment. Mindfulness meditation practices refer to the deliberate acts of regulating attention through the observation of thoughts, emotions and body states.

Both can be used to; Reduced Stress, Increased Focus,Improved Emotion Regulation, Reduced impulsiveness, Increased Empathy and Respect, Increased Resilience. Increased capacity to overcome challenges, Improved Physical Well-being and Improved Creativity and Collaboration

Reiki is a non-invasive complementary therapy, using natural energy flow for health and well-being. Its gentle nature means that Reiki is suitable for all ages. Reiki can be used to treat the whole body or can be localised to a specific part of the body.

Cacao Ceremony

Pure cacao is used as a heart opening medicine for people to safely experience awakening, revelation and inner healing. Cacao is used in a sacred medicinal ritual, where intentions are set and once consumed, subtle deep states are unlocked, negative emotions are released and we are able to connect to ourselves and universal energy more deeply.

    YOGA QUESTIONS

    Am I too old for yoga?
    Definitely not. Many people don't start until later in life. You need to be able to get up and down from the floor, but variations and levels are available for all the poses meaning you can work to your own level and how you feel on the day.

    What should I expect in a yoga class?
    Each class will begin with gentle warm-up exercises to prepare the joints and muscles. A sequence of postures then follows including standing and floor-based poses. Breathing techniques are also included to help release tension. Sessions are completed with a relaxation period to allow the body and mind to rest more deeply and to absorb the benefits of the yoga class.

    Can I do yoga if I'm not flexible?
    Yes, yoga is for you, would you say "I can't have piano lessons, because I can't play the piano?!" ... Overtime the flexibility will come.

    Preparing for the class.
    Come to class with an empty stomache. Drinking water before and after yoga to stay hydrated is recommended, but not encouraged during class as the postures deliberately increase body heat for detoxification.


    What should I wear?
    You don't need special kit to do yoga just make sure that you're comfortable e.g. shorts, leggings, tracksuit and T-shirts are fine. Yoga is practised barefoot to avoid slipping. It's also nice to have a jumper and some socks as your body temperature will cool down during relaxation

    If you have any other questions please get in touch!
